The Mad Scientist: My CFP Doomsday Scenarios For Week 2

  Last week, I began doing a column called "Doomsday Scenarios" for the Power 5 Conferences, and it received quite a reaction and caused some controversy.

The Mad Scientist: My Doomsday Scenarios For CFP Power 5

Well, they came out, and let's just say, the hypothetical scenarios have just begun. Last night, the College Football Playoff committee announced their first set of rankings, and let's just say that the Big 12 and PAC-12 are not happy one bit, the SEC is smiling from ear to ear, the ACC is having a party, and the Big 10 is knocking on the door. However, people seem to forget that

NCAAB: Iowa State Is A Force To Be Reckoned With In The Big 12

If it wasn't for an injury to Georges Niang, the Iowa St. Cyclones might have been national champions. Yes, the team was that good, and going into the 2014-15 season they were once again expected to be one of the elite in college basketball. Despite losing DeAndre Kane to graduation, the Cyclones looked ready to take on any and all comers. They got off to a 3-0 start, but fell

West Virginia Mountaineers: Dana Holgorsen gets desperate signature win

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen has struggled to make an impact on the college football world since his team’s Fiesta Bowl thrashing of Clemson following the 2011 season. That changed on Saturday. The Mountaineers defeated the No. 4 Baylor Bears by a 41-27 score, giving WVU its first win against a Top 5 opponent since 2007, and more importantly, a signature win for Holgorsen.

Oklahoma Sooners: Playoff chances ruined by missed field goal

[caption id="attachment_32286" align="aligncenter" width="801"] (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)[/caption]   No major college football program has more wins than the University of Oklahoma since World War II, so it’s logical to think that they would be involved in college football’s inaugural four-team playoff. With Oklahoma returning a starting quarterback and a handful of offensive weapons, they had the potential to run through a rigorous Big XII schedule. The Sooners’ playoff dreams most

[caption id="attachment_25604" align="aligncenter" width="594"] (Christian Petersen/Getty Images North America)[/caption] Led by a class headlined by Carlos Hyde and Bishop Sankey, the 2014 NFL Draft has some potential steals at running back.

Best Recent College Football Dynasty Ever? Alabama or Nebraska?

MIAMI GARDENS -- Dynasty is a word that has been thrown around in the aftermath of an Alabama Crimson Tide beat down of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Tide ran over, around, and through a Notre Dame defense that had very little answers to a fantastic game-plan by Tide offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier. Alabama became just the second team in college football history to win three national titles in

Fixing College Football Realignment And Money Problems

College Football has been in a tailspin ever since the Southwest Conference fell apart after the 1996 football season. Comprised mostly of Texas schools (Southwest, eh?), eventually the academic and recruiting scandals caught up and forced the shuttering of the conference. In the years following, college football realignment has been dominated by the almighty dollar. In the coming years, it appears college athletics are headed to the four power conferences
